yup, which i think is better? i think the portions we get are actually quite over-portion, especially our carbs.
but on 2nd thought, hawkers may end up reducing our proteins and replacing with more carbs.

The vegetarian stalls very niao with rice but very generous with vegetables, especially those cheap ones that don't sell so well.  There was once they gave me so much kang kong (almost same proportion as the rice).  ::)

White or brown, both very niao..  I think they assume vegetarians all eat very little rice.  Some stalls under some HPB promo offer cheaper brown rice than white.  Maybe HPB helped them to absorb cost.

No one fights for the rights of hawkers to make a profit :(
